Cool craft beer and live music are a feature of this funky inner-city neighbourhood adjacent to Fortitude Valley. Newstead Brewing Co offers more than 10 house-brewed beers, which can be paired with a selection of tasty and sophisticated pub-style eats.

Nearby, live-music venue The Triffid is located in a converted hangar, attracts top international talent and is the brain-child of former Powderfinger bassist John Collins.

For gourmet eats and treats plus a delectable range of fresh food markets, the Gasworks precinct is a popular spot with locals and visitors alike. Those interested in history can take a tour of grand Newstead House, Brisbane’s oldest surviving residence, and then tuck into a picnic just outside in Newstead Park or a superb steak at the Breakfast Creek Hotel across the road, one of Brisbane’s iconic gathering spots.
